Balance of Elegance and Wildness


Cartier’s latest fragrance campaign for “Panthère de Cartier” is a cinematic experience that transcends the traditional boundaries of advertising. Starring British actress Vanessa Kirby, best known for her roles in “The Crown” and “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” the film is a visual and olfactory feast. The campaign, directed by Nathalie Canguilhem, explores the duality of elegance and wild power, much like Cartier’s iconic Panthère.

The Concept

The film takes viewers through a lush, hidden world teeming with life and beauty. Guided solely by her instincts, Vanessa Kirby transforms into a feline creature, embodying predatory and protective traits. This metamorphosis is a metaphor for the fragrance, created in 2014 by Mathilde Laurent, Cartier’s in-house perfumer. The scent is a unique blend of chypre, animal musk, and vibrant gardenia, aiming to revive the chypre family of fragrances.

The Star Power

Last year, Vanessa Kirby’s appointment as a brand ambassador set the stage for her starring role in this campaign. Her performance captures the essence of the Panthère de Cartier collection, which extends beyond fragrances to include watches and jewelry. Her portrayal adds a layer of complexity and allure to the campaign, making it not just an advertisement but a narrative experience.

The Olfactory Experience

La Panthère de Cartier’s fragrance is described as having “irresistible olfactory power.” It’s a bold move to focus a campaign so heavily on something as intangible as scent, but Cartier pulls it off by creating a visual experience that one can almost smell. The fragrance aims to bring the chypre family back into the limelight, offering a fresh, floral-feline, historic, and innovative accord.
